My busy court and advisory practice has been established since 2009, specialising in family finance and property matters. I have considerable experience in dealing with cases involving children, including where one parent seeks to remove the child (or disagrees with their removal) from the jurisdiction, complex domestic violence cases and intractable hostility. I have a growing reputation for dealing with people involved in these highly emotional matters with sensitivity and tact, and my clients, many of whom are dealing with highly stressful circumstances, appreciate my ability to explain complex legal issues, especially where they are unfamiliar with legal terms.
I have acted in a number of cases involving preservation of assets, and am regularly instructed by the Home Office in confiscation and forfeiture matters.
I am especially interested in cases involving human rights issues and access to justice, and in my spare time have volunteered, helping the local community as a legal adviser for the Kent Law Clinic and Citizens Advice Bureau.
